Menu planning help please!

Thanks everyone for all your great feedback and suggestions. I've decided to make some changes so that it's a bit more kid-friendly (mac n cheese, veggies and dip) and less crazy for me (no crostini, one less salad, and some quiches for the grownups).

I really appreciate all your suggestions - you guys are great! Hopefully it all works out...:)

They will be happy with my new revamped menu I think...more kid-friendly stuff.

The older kids are range from 9-14 - some adventurous, some not so much! Thanks for your feedback I have rethought the menu!

Sorry I should have been more specific: yes, tuna, egg and salmon plus pb and j for the kiddies.

Menu planning help please!

I'm having a birthday lunch in mid-may for my one year old son - I have another 2.5 year old son and we are hosting about 25 people, including 6 other (older) kids. It has to be non-meat as my in laws keep kosher and don't want to eat meat in my house ;)

I also should note that I'm very busy with the kiddies so really want to do as much as possible in advance.
Here's what I was thinking:

Savoury:
3 salads - some sort of orzo/tomato/pinenut thing, a snowpea/radish/sesame-miso salad and a crunchy vinegary slaw with cucumbers.
I'm going to order party sandwiches so there's some protein and it's easy.
Then I was thinking I should do some sort of quiche or tart and I'm stumped on something that would be both easy and/or possible to do in advance- any suggestions?
Pesto pea crostini

Sweet:
Cupcakes for the kids
Ina's Lemon Yogurt loaf
Mini peanut butter chocolate cheesecakes
Oatmeal cookies
Fruit

So what am I missing? Is this doable? Any suggestions? Feedback? Thanks in advance!!
